A friend is trying to network his Linux machine with a Mac.  The PCI ethernet card (SIIG PCI Ethernet E-LAN 10Base) he bought is not recognizable by the Mac, since there was no Mac driver included.  The ISA Ethernet card he bought for his Linux PC was installed w/no problem, and no driver software was required.  Any information regarding finding a driver for the card so his 6360 can benetworked would be appreciated.
TIA--

I am not aware of a driver for this particular card, but as far as I know there are only a few PCI ethetnet cards available with mac drivers , one that I am familiar with is made by Focus Enhancements I believe its called Blue Lightning it is a 10/100 card and pretty pricey(150+) or contact apple and see if they have a comm slot card available yet for that model.

Thanks for your help! I was hoping to find a less-pricey driver.  I love Macs, but they can be so expensive...
